Easter Crafting with EQ

You can do all kinds of things with EQ, besides quilting.

Here are some Easter eggs with silhouettes.

You can learn how to draw silhouettes in EQ7 here.

There are also many free printable on the internet. You can print any of these onto EQ Printable Fabric and make fun fabric Easter projects.

Make a fabric bag that you can use year after year. Or a pillow, fabric mask, fabric place cards…even greeting cards can be made out of fabric!

Or, you could use our EQ Peel and Stick, it’s fabric on one side and sticky like a sticker on the other. You can run it through your printer just like any of our EQ Printables!

If this inspires you to make something, let us know! Email photos to Heidi@electricquilt.com.

Happy crafting!

Behind the scenes account: Making a Raffle Quilt for the International Quilt Festival in Houston

Kimmy Brunner at afabricplayground.blogspot.com has been chosen to make raffle quilt for the International Quilt Festival in Houston.

Kimmy says her first thought was “Oh my gosh, I have got to make this quilt a showstopper! and the first tool I turned to was EQ7.  The software has allowed me to draft a difficult and elaborate pattern that I think will turn out very well indeed. Thank you so much for making this tool available to me!”

You can read more about her quilt making here and here and watch her blog for more updates, too!

Kimmie continues on her blog, “I have found [EQ7] to be utterly invaluable when creating quilts that are out of the ordinary. I’m not exactly what you might call a math whiz and, unfortunately, a lot of math is required when drafting funky quilt patterns. Using this software frees me from the math part and allows me to focus on the creative part, which is exactly what I want. One of the other things that I really like about this program is that it allows me to quickly see where I’m going to run into trouble and allows me to make the changes needed to head that trouble off at the pass.”

Congratulations to Kimmie! Can’t wait to see the finished quilt!
